I have been teaching some of the best kids in the world for the past 16 years. I am currently an ELL teacher and love working with students in grades K-12.
I love working with my students each day and watching them learn and grow. I have high expectations for my students and encourage them stretch themselves even when they don't want to stretch. I like talking to them and listening to how they explain what they have learned. Each day is a new adventure.
*2010 Apple Academy in Cupertino, CA - This was an awesome experience. I worked with about 25 other educators from across America for one week exploring and learning about Apple products that can be used in the classroom.

I love going on mission trips to Guatemala. I have also traveled to Uganda and Nicaragua to do missions work and meet children in their school settings. I love visiting foreign schools and getting a feel for how different their 'school days' are.
